April Fools Day–Gettin’ ready!
Make your own spilled fake coffee with a cup, glue and some paint! (Hot chocolate looks great too!) Set your fake spill on your teenager’s homework or computer key board and get ready to laugh. muhahahaha…..
I’ll warn you now though it takes DAYS for the glue to dry – so if you want to make one, better do it today!
Don’t these look like a yummy dessert?
Well, April Fools – they are Meatloaf with mashed potato frosting cupcakes HERE
(Perfect dinner, huh?) TONs more faux food ideas HERE
And how about the ole “Drinking glass and straw with jello instead of a drink” (Yep, bet that takes A LOT of suction….hee hee)
Found a couple new ones that I plan to try on Matt this year:
First I’m going to do “Who Goes There” details HERE. What a funny way to start the day!
How about a Balloon Surprise as someone opens a door? HERE
Of course everyone’s favorite – rubberband the sink nozzle so it’s ready to squirt an unsuspecting hand washer: HERE
And lastly, how about a “Mouse Trap” Put a post-it note over the eye (or ball) of the victim’s computer mouse. When your victim tries to use the computer the cursor won’t move. Be sure to write “April Fools!” on the note!
Please make sure you tell me what you tried and how your April Fools pranks worked out…I’m dying to hear!
I will leave you with what is considered to be the best April Fools day prank of all time (from way back in 1957!)
The Great Spaghetti Tree Hoax
While the camera moved among a Swiss family apparently picking strands of spaghetti from a tree and placing them in baskets to dry in the sun, Dimbleby narrated that the bountiful harvest was due to an unusually mild winter and to the “virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil.” He also detailed how the pasta’s uniform length and rich flavor was the result of decades of experimentation by spaghetti farmers and researchers.
The clip ended with a group of area residents enjoying the alleged fruit of the harvest and Dimbleby commenting, “For those who love this dish, there’s nothing like real, home-grown spaghetti.” Returning to live broadcast, he ended the day’s program by saying, “Now we say goodnight, on this first day of April,” with noticeable emphasis on the final phrase.
